Premier League Round 4 POTW

Candidates:

Dylan Shorne 22 pts, 12 reb, 4 ast
Eian Davis 20 pts, 7 ast
Ricardo Martin 25 pts, 10 reb
Brendan Teys 30 pts, 6 reb
Jake Rios 22 pts, 3 reb, 4 ast
James Legan 23 pts, 6 3s
Alex Starling 16 pts, 9 rebs
Atem Atem 19 pts, 5 rebs
Sam Johns 28 pts, 8 rebs, 10 asts
Greg Mays 30 pts, 10 rebs, 5 asts
Everett Osborne 27 pts, 9 reb, 6 asts
Jonathan Perry 23 pts, 3 rebs
Bryan McGriff 21 pts, 10 rebs, 4 asts in 16 mins

A few guys put up good numbers but were excluded from my consideration due to poor efficiency (I'm looking at you Nate "MVP" Garth)

My picks:
1. Brendan Teys - Led the team to victory after bring close at the half
2. Sam Johns - Close to a triple double
3. Greg Mays - Huge numbers and had 4 steals and 2 blocks to go along with it

Wasn't nearly as effective the week before against the best D in the league.

I think a lot of guys could have 30 vs Mavs.

Glad to see nobody is talking up Will Wise again. For a 6'8 guy 5 rebounds in 35 minutes against Forestville is below ordinary.

If an AFL player had 40 touches in the SANFL I guess it'd be a shit league too.

Wise only had two boards against Southern from memory.

What did Larkins average in PL? I didn't follow that closely last year but his side just missed finals from memory?

Larkins averaged:
11 points
40% FG
37% 3P
3 rebounds
3 assists
3 T/Os

And Centrals finished 3-15, one game off bottom spot.


Quick Joey, sign him up before anyone else does!

What. A. Joke.

Tell me how Larkins, Doyle, Davis got mins over Johns??
Johns been out playing them this PL season (granted Davis has gone to Perth)
Seems odd that he seems to dominate PL but never get past warm ups in NBL

Don't think it’s much of a secret his surname keeps him in the team. Sure isn’t his basketball ability

South Australian kids should get the training or development opportunities not just Joeys mates. That being said it shouldn't be an open invitation forever, if you aren't putting in or doing well at PL then the spot should go to someone that is.

Centrals were a joke last year, speaking of nepotism when the coaches son plays major minutes and is a 18s div 2 player at best you know there's something fishy. No wonder Carlin, Clausen and plenty of others left or quit. Ricky's finally starting to clean up that mess. Former Australian junior reps are playing youth league div 2s and social players playing reserves it's a wonder anyone stayed.
And Joeys got a pretty good record in discovering talent from DPs BTW.

re: Premier League Round 4 POTW

#684192 that question has been raised many times previously! Use Brett Maher as an ambassador like the Lightning have Rachel Sporn and create a 36ers Academy or youth squad. I cant see how hard it would be and would create a great pathway for the SA kids. If they end up going to college at least they have a previous connection with the 36ers organisation and may return.
Come on Joey and big Joe do something thats positive and has a direct connection with the South Australian basketball scene.

684263, trust me they do. They may not be doing with wholesale scale that is highly visible. With the ones that are legitimate prospects they do. It is not their job to support all and sundry and when they do people complain here anyway.

These guys are ontop of it with the top tier talent, they also privately work with some coaches in the men's state program to monitor and support the local talent that come in for trainings, workouts and are supported in other ways.

#684268 I guess that means Sam Johns will be getting a heap more court time this season coming up?

Larkins 2017 PL 11.33 ppg 3.61 rpg 3.28 apg on 40% shooting
Johns stats this year dominate anything larkins has done
He should be handed any mins Larkins played and some of Teys based on how this season is going

I guess if DJ ever actually plays and just chucks up 3s like he did last time Johns will deserve some of his minutes too?

Larkins clearly only getting minutes due to family Ties. Johns currently the best Australian talent in the league bar DJ (if he plays). look all the way back to his U14 nationals, Been a stud ever since.

Have only seen Johns play once this season but was impressed. Obviously there's a huge gap between the league but I think you could do worse than sign him as a 10/11th man. In fact I think we have done worse by signing Doyle to that role!

Good player, but NBL? Really??

Needs to that at least do that at SEABL, a tougher, more even and competitive league.

Then maybe can be in the discussion. Right now in a pissant league, in a dominant team that will easily win every week.

Easy to put up big numbers in a team like that when you are winning by 20 pts plus week in and out.
